PGR parents support group

by | Mar 26, 2019 | Events, News | 0 comments

The Doctoral Academy offers a PGR Parents Group. The Group is open to all parents, parents-to-be and carers who are PhD students at the university and meets once a month.

The sessions begin with a brief introduction by a member of the Doctoral Academy Student Support Team, but then attendees are left alone for the session to run un-facilitated.

These informal sessions provide the opportunity to:

  • Discuss issues related to returning to your PhD after parental leave
  • Share experiences of balancing research and caring responsibilities in a safe environment
  • Hear about what has worked for others
  • Offer peer support

Hot drinks and light refreshments are always provided, and students are welcome to bring their own lunch.

If you have any questions about the peer support group, please contact: or

Upcoming dates:

Please note the different locations:

  • Wednesday 17th April, 12-2 pm – Niels Bohr Room
  • Wednesday 15th May, 12-2 pm – GA.12

All sessions will take place in Schuster Building and you are welcome to drop in anytime 12.00 – 2.00pm.
